And, telemedicine will continue to be important to companies by providing an additional access point to care that can help drive better clinical outcomes and shorten work injury case durations," said Ann Schnure, vice president of telemedicine at Concentra. "Our workflow is based on evidence-based clinical guidelines and ensures continuity of care by leveraging the same electronic medical record and practice model regardless of access point. We are tremendously proud of what we have been able to create with eVisit in our virtual clinical workflow.
